If you have a new style front main seal it will come equipped with a wear sleeve that is pressed onto the crankshaft when the seal is installed. The oil pump cover and front main seal will easily pull off but the wear sleeve stays pressed on the crank and does not allow the inner gear to be removed without removing the sleeve first.
There is a special wear sleeve remover tool but that shouldn't be entirely necessary. What I would be more worried about is how are you going to get the new seal and sleeve pressed on without the installer tool?
